Last week I received my new iMac Retina. Never seen as screen as crisp as this one.
My old iMac was showing his age, nearly 5 years old. Still a good machine though.
If you’re interested you will find lots of reviews on the internet by now.
Last summer I have bought a motorbike. One reason I did it, is that here, in France, I’m allowed to ride a motorbike up till 125cc with my normal driver license.
Another reason is my neightbor, who’s a little motor-mad.
So this summer we made some trips together, sometimes from terrace to terrace. We enjoyed it.
On my new iMac Retina I need a way to test how graphics look on normal screens. The way I do this is be installing a virtual machine.
I have long used Parallels Desktop and/or VMWare Fusion. When I still worked, most of my colleagues used Windows. It was very handy to be able to reproduce their environment and troubles.
But these VM’s are pricy. Certainly when you take in account the many updates. Each one costs about 50 euro.
A thing that has bothered me lately is the all-mighty-google: they know far too much of what I do.
I try to avoid using this all-mighty as much as possible.
One of the first things that I’ve changed is moving from DropBox to Bittorrent Sync. Bittorrent Sync is very secure, there’s nothing scanned by the all-mighty and it goes fast. No Cloud involved.
